Lincoln Center Theater: Oslo

with J.T. Rogers and Bartlett Sher

Monday, March 6, 2017 at 7:30pm

 

On Monday, March 6, 2017 at 7:30pm, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents a discussion with Oslo playwright J.T. Rogers and director Bartlett Sher prior to the Broadway premiere of what has been hailed as a “disarmingly funny masterpiece” (Huffington Post). Excerpts from the play will be performed by members of the cast.

 

Oslo tells the little-known story of Norwegian diplomat Mona Juul, her husband Terje Rød-Larsen, and a group of Israelis and Palestinians struggling to overcome their fears and mistrust of one another to coordinate secret negotiations between Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. Their efforts culminated in the signing of the Oslo Accords and led to the iconic moment when the two leaders shook hands on the South Lawn of the White House in 1993.

 

Oslo begins previews on March 23, 2017 and will open on April 13, 2017 at Lincoln Center Theater’s Vivian Beaumont Theater in New York City.
